As we get closer to Christmas and the New Year, we are also coming up to the birthdays for our boys. We have one turning 6 before Christmas and our baby to celebrate his first Christmas then birthday in January. I understand that to some this may present as poor planning on our behalf to have our children so close to Christmas. In reality, we had little planning or control over when our babies joined our family.
While it may seem like a harmless comment, this is what it sparks in me:
But what I am grateful for is the two beautiful boys that I get to celebrate their existence with every December and January. I’m grateful for medical treatment available to bring them into the world safely. I’m grateful I get to be a Mum, no matter what months they were born.
So to those who think I didn’t planned well, you are right. But you don’t always get to choose or control when you become a Mum.
